Nanoil is the first organic synthetic oil, made from biodiesel byproducts
In all seriousness, let's talk about that two-cycle engine you're running and want to make more green. Nano Chemical Systems Holdings, Inc. thinks you should try NanOil, a two-cycle engine oil that performs as a "moly" oil and can be made from by-products of one type of Green Palm Biodiesel production. NanOil is the first commercially offered organic synthetic oil, according to the company. Thanks to an agreement reached yesterday, NanOil will be marketed by Marketiquette, Inc. to automotive aftermarket distribution network, places like AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, Pep Boys, NAPA, Carquest, Costco and Wal-Mart.
So, what is NanOil? It's made from organic materials instead of petroleum, the aforementioned biodiesel byproducts. As for how it works, Nano Chemical Systems Holdings tell us,
"NanOil(TM) patent pending process immerses nano-sized molybdenum metal ball bearings to support the oil made from the byproducts of one type of the Palm Bio-diesel production process. Implementing nano-technology to make nano-sized ball bearings allows the use of only trace amounts of "moly" to achieve or exceed performance specifications because the performance is dependent on the surface area of the ball bearings and not on the total weight of "moly" where a nano-meter size ball has 2,000 times as much surface area per unit weight as a 10,000 times larger micron sized ball."
And that's why it deserves a 1,280-pixel-wide image (or it's just because I can't quite believe they sent out such a huge promo photo of a plastic bottle).
